At the beginning of the 2021 holiday season, Vancouver Career College reached out to students and faculty to help support Canadian food banks, and donate non-perishable food items across our campuses in BC. This year, the food drive was led by the message, “Give What You Can, Take What You Need”.
Over the course of the campaign our students and faculty donated hundreds of non-perishable food items and helped make the holidays a little brighter for individuals and families across BC.
